Some people complain that cooking brown rice is more inconvenient. Why? That’s because if you want to give the brown rice a better texture, it is common to soak the rice for half an hour before cooking it. We do this because you need to soften the outer bran layer. However, when done poorly, the insides of the brown rice become gummy and gooey.
In this post, we’ll teach you how to eliminate this downtime and cook brown rice faster, without compromising on taste and quality. It’s worth it to pick brown rice, not only for its many health benefits (link to hidden secrets post), but also for its undeniable depth and taste that white rice simply cannot compare to. Through our cooking experiments, we figured out these brown rice cooking shortcuts!
If you have a basic rice cooker with a simple On/Off lever, try this:
After rinsing the brown rice, add 2 cups of water for every cup of rice. This should result in your rice being fluffy, evenly cooked and ready to eat in about 30 minutes!
If you use a steamer to cook your rice, try this:
For every cup of rice, add 1 cup of water. When the water in the steamer is boiling, put in the rice to cook. After 15 minutes, turn off the fire and let the rice sit with the steamer lid on, for another 5 minutes before serving!
